Wales

Holiday cottages in Wales offer a fantastic mix of beautiful landscapes and vibrant cities. One day you could be enjoying the unrivalled tranquillity and expansive views of Snowdonia, and the next you could be joining the throng at Cardiff’s majestic Millennium Stadium. To borrow a well-worn phrase, Wales truly is a destination with something for everyone. The only problem with so much choice is finding the right thing for you and your fellow holidaymakers to enjoy, so we’re going to make a few recommendations for an unforgettable holiday in Wales.

Wales really is a country of highlights, with an incredible array of fantastic attractions, both natural and man-made. One of the best ways to get your bearings is to head upwards, so we’re going to recommend a trip to Snowdonia National Park first. If you’d like a bird’s eye view of your stunning surroundings there really is no place like it. The circular Precipice Walk offers a slightly challenging two-hour trek but the pay off is expansive views as far as the eye can see. Mount Snowdon is easily accessible thanks to a train ride, or a climb for more intrepid visitors. However you choose to reach it, the views from the surrounding landscape are breathtaking. Less taxing, but no less beautiful, is the Pembrokeshire Coast. The UK's only truly coastal national park offers stunning limestone cliffs, soft golden sands and cool blue waters as far as the eye can see. Wales’ industrial heritage is celebrated at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns. One of the country’s premier tourist attractions, it offers both a fascinating insight into the lives of the miners and a truly unique landscape to explore and admire. If you fancy a more vibrant holiday experience then there are few better locations than Cardiff. Like Wales itself, the capital city offers a wonderful celebration of history and a wealth of contemporary attractions, so it’s perhaps unsurprising to find out that it’s also one of the most popular destinations for those with Welsh holiday cottages.

A beautifully varied landscape makes Welsh cottages perennially popular with outdoor enthusiasts and those who fancy enjoying the fresh air and stunning spectacle of some of the UK’s most celebrated natural locations. Hikers, climbers, cyclists and boaters will all find much to enjoy in the ‘Land of Song’. Pet owners will be equally satisfied with their choice of holiday destination and there are plenty of places to stretch the legs and give the dog a welcome run-around. If you fancy a more cosmopolitan experience then you’ll find more than enough cities offering great shopping opportunities, vibrant nightlife and a packed calendar of cultural events.

If you’re ready to begin your exploration, take a look at our featured Wales holiday cottages.

    Ref: UK6008
    Located in the village of Rhuddlan, just three miles from the popular seaside resort of Rhyl, Hafan-y-Gornel is the perfect base for families, couples or friends looking for an action packed coastal escape. Attached to the owner’s home but with separate access and its own decked patio, the property has been thoughtfully refurbished to provide well proportioned and comfortable accommodation. Downstairs is a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious lounge/dining room with French windows. Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom complete with a shower cubicle and a Jacuzzi bath, great for relaxing in after the day’s activities. The shower room has a seat and there are grab rails in the bathroom.

    Hafan-y-Gornel is located in a quiet cul-de-sac, approximately half a mile from Rhuddlan. There is a large supermarket close by and many family friendly pubs, takeaways and restaurants all within a 10-minute walk. At the end of the road there is a bus stop with services into Rhyl, Prestatyn, St Asaph and Denbigh. The village has a small selection of shops as well as a library, beauty spa and of course Rhuddlan Castle which dates back to the 13th Century.
    Rhyl, which is one of the most popular beach resorts for families, has attractions including the Seaquarium, Drift Park, Marine Lake and the miniature railway. There is also a park with tennis courts, bowling green and botanical gardens. Prestatyn, four and a half miles, is another very popular seaside resort along the north Wales coast. Apart from its sandy beaches there is also a great retail park and the fantastic Nova leisure centre which offers swimming, gymnasium, fitness clases, cafe and a great children’s soft play area. Should you prefer a more old fashioned seaside experience, the Victorian town of Llandudno is just 20 miles away.

    Other places of interest within easy driving distance include Bodelwyddan Castle, St Asaph, Bodnant Gardens and Colwyn Bay. Further afield yet still under an hour away are Llangollen, Snowdonia and Anglesey. Perfect for those who love the outdoors with lots of activities available locally to suit all tastes and abilities. Enjoy a pleasant coastal walk or follow the River Clwyd, Dyserth Waterfalls and Offa’s Dyke which passes through Prestatyn. Ideal for cyclists and mountain bikers, the north Wales coast national cycle route links Gronant, Prestatyn, Rhyl, Kinmel Bay and Abergele, and is almost completely traffic free. There are two cycle routes starting in Prestatyn which take in the picturesque Dyserth Waterfalls, Barkby Beach and Frith Beach. Marsh Trails in Rhyl has a BMX track with coaching and equipment hire available. Serious cyclists may want to venture further afield to Llandegla Forest, 26 miles. For those that don’t have their own bikes, there is a cycle hire shop in Prestatyn.
    Being close to the coast, there is a wide variety of beach activities and water sports on offer including kite surfing, sailing, water skiing, wakeboarding and kneeboarding. Golf is available within a mile, or for something different why not try paintballing at St George, six miles, or ZipWorld Titan in Blaenau Ffestiniog, 42 miles, which is also home to Bounce Below, where you can jump on giant trampolines in the underground caverns. Hot tubs can be hired locally. There are cinemas in Prestatyn and Rhyl, which also has a small theatre. The property owners have a wealth of knowledge about these activities which they will be happy to share with you to ensure that you get the most out of your holiday.
